“Tranquil”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

This is a peaceful green (or yellow if the daffodils are out) area surrounded by pretty white-washed alms houses. There isn‘t much to it, except the tranquillity (providing there aren’t any bus parties visiting at the same time.) The swans on the canal outside make a good photo opportunity.

“Sublime & Peaceful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

The Beguinage is serene and beautiful, and we were fortunate to see when all of the daffodils on the main green were in full bloom. It's an absolute "must-see" in Bruges.

“Wonderful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

This is a very nice place to visit, it is a shame that it is always very crowded in the tourist season, which is in contrast to what the purpose of the place is. Please respect the inhabitants if you visit.

“The Beguinage deserves your respect and silence.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

We decided to take this walk through the Beguinage and were pleasantly surprised by the peacefulness of it all. Everywhere there are little signs asking you to be silent ('stttt') and to keep off the grass (a picture of a foot with a cross through it). The field with multi colored daffodils was very nice to look at. If you go to Brugge, don't just visit the Markt, but also go this peaceful part of Brugge! It'll pay you back in a positive influence on your mindset.

“Very tranquil and beautiful. The history behind this Convent is deep and so interesting.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

It is located next to the Brewery which is a lovely little distraction. Nothing to dislike about something so calming and rare in this rat-race world we live in.
